Braun helps Brewers beat Indians, 6-5

Ryan Braun

GOODYEAR, AZ (AP) — Ryan Braun drove in two runs, doubling his spring training total, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 6-5 Monday.

Norichika Aoki broke a 5-all tie in the ninth with an RBI triple for the Brewers.

Carlos Santana hit a two-run homer for Cleveland. Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan hit two doubles in his first at-bats since March 15. He had been out with a sore back.

Braun went 1 for 4. He’s hitting only .120 with four RBIs after an offseason in which shortly after he won the NL MVP he was suspended 50 games for a positive drug test, only to have it overturned last month.

Indians opening-day starter Justin Masterson gave up five runs over six innings.

Brewers starter Chris Narveson yielded four runs over 6 1-3 innings.
